Sutter Lakeside Hospital donates to homeless warming center
Lake County News

On a cold night in January, volunteers gather at the Lakeport Seventh Day Adventist Church to prepare for their guests’ arrival, a moment 15 years in the making.

The volunteers, who hail from churches all over Lake County, prepare for the night ahead of them, during which they will facilitate hot showers, two hot meals and a safe place to sleep for their guests: homeless members of the community.

“The idea for a warming center started fifteen years ago, when a group of pastors had a piece of property and recognized a need in the community,” said Shannon Kimbell-Auth, president of the Lake Ministerial Association and pastor of United Christian Parish in Lakeport.
